It doesn’t take much to put a smile on my face. Happiness is a good pair of knitting needles!
Some of my all-time favourite knitting needles are my metal Addi circulars. Back when I became seriously hooked on knitting again, Addi needles were the norm in Dublin’s better yarn stores. I bought a good few pairs, but my most cherished ones were a pair of 4mm circulars with metal points. For a few years, almost everything I knitted was done on those – until one fateful day I lost them. When I went to pick up a replacement set, I discovered that there was no longer an Addi stockist in Dublin city centre, and I was gutted!
Fast forward a few years, and I found myself trying to source knitting needles to sell in my own online store… And I was having some difficulty. I didn’t want to stock anything I wouldn’t use myself, but a lot of the needle brands I rate most highly were only available through non-EU wholesalers, and that means import taxes. Not ideal if you’re only starting out!
So I thought, “What about Addi? They’re good quality, and made in Germany – maybe I can reach out to them.”
So that’s what I did. And now, finally, I can offer a range of my favourite metal-tipped circular knitting needles for sale to you, my lovely customers!
I have two cable lengths available (40cm and 80cm) and a range of needle point sizes, which will cover you for most projects. I also made sure to buy in the recommended needle sizes for every yarn I sell, so whatever you’re making, I can get you kitted out to make a start on it!
Take a look at the full range of Addi circular knitting needles in my store now! And if you’re not sure about which needles go with which yarn, you can always reach me here – I’m happy to help.
And that’s all from me for this week… Now I might just go and treat myself to a fresh shiny pair of 4mm Addi knitting needles! See you next time, and happy knitting!
